Harbour Pines Retirement Village is centrally located in Geraldton, Western Australia. Geraldton is a thriving, vibrant city that has many engaging, well-resourced services and holds regular community events.

Top 6 things to do in Geraldton (we just couldn’t limit it to 5):

  1. Visit the sites. There are many historical and modern points of interest in Geraldton including the HMAS Sydney Memorial, the new Beresford Foreshore, the old Geraldton Gaol Craft Centre, Railway station markets, Bill Sewell Complex (old Victoria Hospital), Monsignor Hawes Heritage Centre and Geraldton Museum. Be a tourist in your own town, take a tour and explore the history.
  2. Go for a dip at the Aquarena. Only four kilometres away from the village is Geraldton’s aquatic centre. There are three heated indoor pools and one outdoor pool to enjoy. The soothing hydrotherapy pool has ramp access and separate change rooms. There are regular fitness and physiotherapy classes.
  3. The Geraldton Regional Library is a hub of movies, magazines, books and history. They are also online so you can borrow virtual books. The mobile outreach service is available for those who are unable to go in. There are even puzzles that you can take home and bring back when you like.
  4. Explore a new interest and meet others at the QEII. The Queen Elizabeth II Seniors and Community Centre is owned and operated by the City of Greater Geraldton. The programs offered are specifically tailored to helping seniors live an active and rich lifestyle. Learn to use your device better through the ‘Be Connected’ program, try African drumming, ukulele, boxing or Zumba. There are multiple activities on every day from Monday to Friday.
  5. Volunteer. Geraldton has numerous groups of all interests who are always looking for people to join in. Your commitment can be casual or ongoing but the community thrives because of the number of people who lend a hand or a thought to their most favourite cause.
  6. Visit the Geraldton Cultural Trust (also known as the Residency). There are around 25 groups that operate out of that space offering clubs and classes such as craft, yoga, silversmithing, sewing, pottery, astronomy and camera club.

These are just the tip of the iceberg. There are entertaining events and shows held throughout the year, local sport games to enjoy and weekly community markets. Make a few friends at Harbour Pines Retirement Village and you’ll always have someone to go with.
